winning the democratic primary to run for jesse jackson, jr.'s vacant congressional seat. kelly's campaign was helped by more than $2 million in pro-gun control ads paid by new york city mayor michael bloomberg political action fund. ashley: heather, thanks very much. we appreciate that. italy's borrowing costs are at a four-month high after the first post-election bond sale but it is calming investor fears of a political stalemate, a vacuum if you like in rome could reignite the eurozone debt crisis. what is next for italy? a little unclear. joining us now, vice president and portfolio manager at oppenheimer funds. thanks for joining us. would it be fair to say that the results of the tallian -- italian election is basically anti-austerity and take that further, anti-german? >> very much agree with your statement. italians have clearly voted against the e.u. imposed austerity and they did it in two forms. they voted down dramatically mario monthty who was the symbol of that as you -- austerity and the e.u. driven reform process. secondly they have voted with incredible, incredible strengt

night there was a special election. it was in a democratic seat to replace jesse jackson. a lot of people are scoffing about it. conservatives immediately because michael bloomberg went in. there was a candidate that was in a competitive race who was supported by the nra. bloomberg came in. and it changed everything overnight. >> he did. and he spent, i believe, $2 million on that race in a media market like chicago in a race at this level, $2 million is a lot of money. it's a lot of money anywhere. but coming in at the last minute and flood, saturate the airwaves with advertising in support of her and, you know, look. we talked about this a couple days before on the program. the mayor is a dangerous man in american politics right now for people who want to fight this battle. >> yeah, whatever you want to spend on trying to advocate for guns, he will triple, double, quadruple, he will spend more. >> he's got a limitless bank account, and as i said the other day, a lot of really smart political advisors who know that they want him to have an impact. and he cares about this. he's

-- quote -- "barry jackson, boehner's chief of staff, found lew's tone disrespectful and dismissive. close quote. he goes on to say -- quote -- "lew was incredulous when he considered the republican proposal as a whole. the changes they were considering sounded simple, but the speaker's office was laying down general principles and looking to apply them to extremely complex programs. the devil was always in the details. boehner was sick of the white house meetings. he was still mostly the president lecturing. he reported to his senior staff. the other knowing factor was jack lew who tried to explain why the democrats' view of the world was right and the republicans' wrong. look, when you're in a negotiation, it's not the time to have an argument over what you -- your world view and my world view. what you have to try to do is find out aren't there some things we can agree on that are consistent with both our world views, and get us in a position so we can reach an agreement to save the republic from financial disaster? why wouldn't the office of management and budget director, unless he be

jackson, mississippi. jason, republican caller. caller: thank you. there is a couple of really somewhat offensive and i think -- i need further explanation and so do the listeners. the claim was stated moments ago about title v and saying it is clearly needed. an example is, for instance, more than 50% of white voters in mississippi voted for president obama. that is a fallacy. the claim does not support the supposition. what is the proof, then, without the biases? to understand the nature of political bias? from these claims, the heritage fellow stated, real claims against alabama have not been present or credible. so i don't understand why it's sort of makes me think i am listening to a radio show from 1950 when in fact it is 2013. host: we go to mr. berman for a response to that. guest: in 2001 it was a majority black town in mississippi. but the governing board, the mayor, and the city council were all white. in 2001 when there was going to be elections and it was clear that black voters were going to be able to win seats in that election, the government canceled the election becaus

in the henry jackson so side looked at the court records of those convicted of terrorism in the united states since the mid 1990s, and al-qaida terrorism. and the conclusions were surprising. over half of these individuals were american citizens. 60% of them had at least a college degree. 60% of them were working or in school at the time of their act, at the time of their arrest. and about 25% of them were actually converts to islam. this kind of cuts against the grain of the general impression with regard to the domestic threat, with regard to the selfradicalized threat. in that sense it's really important information. martha: you're describing these people as sort of established in this country to some extent. >> right, successful. martha: not wandering and susceptible and vulnerable to someone swaying them into doing something. very deliberate and determined. how do we find these people and stop them from doing what they want to pull off? >> that's why this report is so very important. we have large ethic communities, we called them heritage communities when i was at cia in dearborn, michi
